What is the Festival of Wreaths?

The Festival of Wreaths is an annual fundraiser organized by the Aurora Museum Foundation and Aurora History Museum and Historic Sites. All proceeds from the online auction and the November 10th live auction event support exhibits and educational programs.

Silent bidding will take place on Bidding Owl, and a live auction event will occur at the Fundraiser Event.
